Weekends Links: Jessica Stam for Vogue Japan

Posted on December 29th, 2012


Hope you’re all doing well and had a beautiful Holiday experience (if you celebrate, of course!). I’ve been busy with getting ready for the New Year and spending time with my family. In my limited spare time I’ve been focusing on redesigning a new layout for Lace & Tea which should be completed rather soon. After that is done, things should be smooth sailing here for a while! x

Today after spending a couple hours browsing for some inspiration I came across this stunning editorial featuring Jessica Stam and it reminded me of how much I adore Vogue Japan in it’s entirety. The exquisite styling and it’s dark contrasting work together just perfectly in my opinion.

And, since I haven’t done it in a while, here are my favorite links for the past month or so. Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week as well . . .

Weekend Links: Flights of Fancy

Posted on June 10th, 2012


I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I spent most of it indoors as it turned into a monsoon rather quickly here on Friday and has been raining ever since! No worries though, I caught up on some much needed baking and prepped a few meals for next week. Sometimes a hard rain can be a wonderful thing to help clear the mind . . .

Here are a few of my most enjoyed links for the past week (hope you find them equally as interesting!):
* the sea, the sea
* diy garden projects
* love report: dragonslayer
* photography by prue ruscoe
* garden party
* inspiration for a studio
* a few lovely fashion sketches
* style inspiration: summer gold.

And, a few quick links to my latest posts here:
* erdem resort 2013
* home tour: sally campbell
* an ivy covered art studio

Have a wonderful start to your week tomorrow everyone, x.

{Weekend Links} The Silver Screen

I thought I’d finish off this week with this dazzling photo by Adam Whitehead. The thin and intricately cut silver skirt is completely out of this world, don’t you agree?

I spent most of this weekend reorganizing most of my office area and taking care of my slowly maturing vegetable plants in my garden (a few more weeks til harvest!). I hope all of you have had a fun & hopefully sunny weekend. Here are a few of my favorite posts for last week:

* love report: early spring finds
* alexis anne mackenzie’s collages
* ethereal vogue germany
